The Emmys are approaching fast, and the nominees will be announced at the crack of dawn this Thursday. I'm already setting my alarm clock in anticipation, but in the meantime, I've been brainstorming the actors and shows that I'd like to see make the cut for the first time. So, to the Academy of Arts and Sciences, may I submit the following for your consideration.
A couple moody Lanvins, two fresh LWDs, a few colorful maxis, some yummy men, and lots of sexy legs are on this week's agenda. First order of business — doesn't Emma Roberts look beautiful as ever in her white Temperley London dress? The gold beading and shoulder cutouts, not to mention the flowy fabric and short hemline, make her look like a goddess of our times. As for the rest of the stylish celeb gang this week, they're all working it in their own way, from sidewalks to red carpets. Go on, get in there!
Becki Newton attended the What Goes Around Comes Around party in NYC looking on-trend in a light lace dress by Dolce & Gabbana. We're smitten with how the long sleeves and fringe embellishments pay ode to Bohemia. Meanwhile, a super-short hemline, leopard print Christian Louboutin pumps, chunky gold jewels, and a diminutive Chanel bag supply the right amount of sizzle.

The networks are recruiting for an onslaught of new TV pilots, and they're giving a second chance to several well-deserving familiar faces.
- Arrested Development fans rejoice! If you can't wait for the long-anticipated movie version of the axed-too-soon show, a few of its team members may be coming to the small-screen sooner than you think. Will Arnett is joining Arrested writers Mitch Hurwitz and Jim Vallely to create a new show for Fox. The premise follows a rich Beverly Hills guy (Arnett) who marries a woman who can't stand how annoying he is. Shouldn't be too much of a stretch for Gob Bluth.
- Ugly Betty may be saying goodbye this season, but Amanda is already getting work outside of Mode. Becki Newton is signing on for the NBC dramedy pilot Love Bites, a collection of stories about modern love, sex, and dating. Newton is set to play, Annie, a sunny, optimistic social worker — and virgin. Bonus: the show is from Sex and the City alumna Cindy Chupack.
- If Battlestar Galactica graduate Katee Sackhoff's current stint on 24 isn't enough to whet your appetite, the actress is taking up residence at ABC for a crime drama. The currently untitled project centers on a detective (Sackhoff) who helps an ex-cop clear his name by uncovering the series of events and conspiracy that ruined his career.
- Lightning is striking twice for Nicollette Sheridan. After getting the boot from Desperate Housewives, the actress is moving to CBS for a comedy pilot from the guys behind Borat and Bruno. The semi-scripted series focuses on a father who moves from the UK to LA to reunite with his daughter, a famous teen celeb; Sheridan will costar as her crazy stage mom. Fun!
Which pilot are you most excited about?
Our favorite trends of the year revolve around two body parts, while one can be splattered anywhere on the body. Intrigued? Legs got a lot of attention with the emergence of sexy over-the-knee boots, denim's distressed revenge, and the reemergence of leggings. Meanwhile, shoulder love continued to flourish via shoulder pads and sharp outerwear — specifically, the Michael Jackson-esque drummer jacket. Lastly, studs continue to deliver edge and sass to clothing, shoes, and bags. Which trend did you follow the closest in 2009?

The stars spread some holiday cheer last night at Gap's new 8,000-square-foot concept store in Soho. The always-adorable Becki Newton and Emmy Rossum stopped by and tried on scarves and hats. The City's Roxy Olin also made a cameo and left with a bag full of goodies. Good thing because 30 percent of of all purchases benefited Feeding America. There was live music, Christmas trees, candy canes, cozy sweaters, and lots of holiday love to go around.
There were lots of fun, star-studded events this week. From a U2 concert to a fancy gala, Fab favorites like Diane Kruger, Amy Smart, and Reese Witherspoon dressed the part in everything from leggings to dresses.
